Abstract

This case report illustrates the aggravation of a clinically silent left ventricular outflow tract obstruction by maintenance use of nifedipine in a patient with chronic severe aortic regurgitation, and demonstrates a potential limitation of vasodilator therapy in the management of this patient population. Recognition of this clinical scenario is imperative, as decision making in patients with chronic severe aortic regurgitation rests on the development of symptoms and/or left ventricular dysfunction in relation to theregurgitant volume. The importance of echo cardiography in the detection of this valvular finding and in the follow up of these patients is emphasized.
